The Seal Beach Police Department is seeking the  public’s help  in identifying two  suspects believed to be  responsible for  an  armed robbery at the  T- Mobile.

 

On  Tuesday, May 10,  at about 3:20 p.m., the  Seal Beach Police Department received a call of a robbery at the  T-Mobile located at 12800 Seal Beach Blvd., #B. When officers arrived on  scene, they discovered that two suspects entered the  store and allegedly attempted to steal high-end cellular phones by  cutting the  security cables affixed to the  display.

 

An  employee at the  business attempted to stop one of the  suspects by  physically preventing him from leaving the  store.  The employee and suspect began to struggle, and a physical altercation ensued.  After fighting for  a several seconds, the  suspect was able to get  away from the  employee and ran  through the  parking lot.   Both suspects fled the  scene in a gold-colored Lexus sedan prior to police arrival.

 

A witness observed that the  suspect was holding a firearm in his  hand during the  fight. The gun was not  fired during this  incident.  The employee was uninjured.

 

One suspect was described as a Black male in appearance, in his  late 20s, approximately 6 feet tall, weighing 180 pounds, and was seen wearing a black jacket and dark jeans.

 

The second suspect was described as  a Black or Latino male in appearance, in his  late 20s, approximately 5 feet 8 inches tall,  weighing 160 pounds, and was seen wearing a light grey jacket and grey sweatpants.

 

This is an  ongoing investigation.  Police are asking anyone with information to contact Detective Ryan Bedard at (562) 799-4100, ext. 1113, or rbedard@sealbeachca.gov.
